Braid if you don't have friends or XBL buddies with Castle Crashers.

Braid until Castle Crashers gets fixed. Then toss a coin.

I would say that overall you should just flip a coin...or, you know, try out the demos for both and see which one you'd rather buy.

Well, do you play with friends over live or in RL? (and if online, do they have CC?) ...if you answered no to both questions then I would recommend Braid I guess.

No coin toss needed. Castle Crashers currently *is* and will be the better game.

Dude, I'd say Braid. I got a great feeling after beating Braid. Castle Crashers I only made it to like...the 5th level before I got bored. That and I hate Newgrounds =D

It's all the sudden working for me. Don't know why or how. It just does.
I would say castle crashers. A lot more fun. But Braid is plain amazing. But hard as hell.

You're telling me. I'm so close to looking at an FAQ for World 6 and I pretty much got someone to tell me how to get a piece or two in World 5. My Castle Crashers is still busto though.

Well I've only played the demos, but Castle Crashers feels like the kind of game that will last you longer.
Only get Braid if you have extra points lying around.

I haven't purchased each of the full games, but I preferred the Braid demo to the Castle Crashers demo.

Braid.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - the ending is EPIC.

If you have your friends over a lot, then get Castle Crashers, but if not, get Braid.

But he's just asking about those two games, not Banjo.

I say Castle Crashers. Braid is fun but it's pretty short and once you beat it, there is no reason to go back. Castle Crashers on the other hand has a lot of replayability because you unlock new characters, and there is a bunch of weapons and animal orbs to collect. Plus the online and offline co-op is super fun

Braid without a doubt.

Game that is years ahead of its time and does more to advance gaming as more than mindless entertainment than any game ever

VS

fun but still-broken brawler.

Two different genres.

Braid is a puzzle game, Castle Crashers is a fighting game. With that said, PGR 4 > Halo 3

It's a shame that Castle Crashers has so much more support than Braid.

Don't you think Braid's kind of pretentious?
To me it just kind of screams GAMES ARE ART YOU FUCKING IDIOT GET WITH THE TIMES JEEZ!!

I can't remember who it was that said Castle Crashers was an overpriced Flash game, but I could literally make Braid in Flash, while I wouldn't even know where to start with Castle Crashers.

You could make the game mechanics maybe, but I seriously doubt you could make the puzzles half as good.

That's true. That's why I'm saying "Castle Crashers is an over-priced Flash game" is a dumb thing to say.

I say Braid.  I bought that one and trialed Castle Crashers and I want to get the latter, but Braid is unequaled.  I am going to get both eventually, and I would suggest you do the same.

Also, I know you can only pick one and odds are you've aready chosen, but you can't have just one of these games. As soon as you can afford the other, go for it.

Ahead of its time? Going a little overboard there. Art has been around a long time, combine it with a puzzle game - nothing "ahead of its time" here. If anything it's unique, and that's about it.

Dropping 180 thou for some watercolor paintings isn't really my idea of gaming progression.
